Our Production Company

New Dream Productions is a film and screen production company forged in 2022 by the visionary David Cook.


Fuelled by an unwavering passion for storytelling, David embarked on a mission to give voice to narratives that stirred his soul. The inception of New Dream Productions marked not just the birth of a company, but the realization of a creative dream.

Within the heart of the company's journey lies David's resolute commitment. As a writer, producer, actor and director, he developed and directed his debut feature, Heart of the Man, a film that transcends boundaries and carries a piece of his soul in each scene. This achievement, backed by the exceptional skills of Australia's foremost post-production hub, The Post Lounge, has earned its place on the coveted stage of the Cannes Film Market in 2023.


Under David's guidance, New Dream Productions has swiftly blossomed into a powerhouse, breathing life into music videos, short films, and a compelling television pilot.


As New Dream Productions continues to script its own chapters, David's role as a filmmaker of authentic, heartfelt narratives shines brightly.
